It's like making a Bizarro movie that's inexplicably divorced from Superman.
Yep...what symbol will he have on his chest...any? What will it be if the symbiote has never merged with Parker?
Like, it's not a huge swerve to just make it a generic alien body horror/action flick, but it does strip what was already (IMO) a pretty flat character of anything that made him interesting in that he was basically an evil Spider-man, who specifically mimicked the same character design and powers, or negated them and knew who Peter Parker was. THAT was his whole hook, not just, "Venom is a violent alien goo possessing a human who does horsefeathers up stuff" (which is, unfortunately, all he turned into REAL fast as they rode him into the ground and then some).
